Bandmates and longtime friends Yukimi Nagano and Erik Bodin of the Swedish indie pop quartet Little Dragon have long had an affinity for American R&B, and that fondness informed the band's trip-hop-flavored 2007 debut. For their second outing Machine Dreams, Little Dragon retains some of that influence, but this time the group's spacey soulfulness is colored with an icy electro-pop quality. This track, with its dreamy synths, Bodin's sultry beat and Nagano's slow-burning vocals, smolders with new wave sensuality.
